2014 TCGA Symposium Keynote

Members of the OCC and OSDC team were present during the recent The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) symposium at which OCC Founder and Director Robert Grossman gave a keynote address that considered the future of genomics and bioinformatics research.

Dr. Grossman framed the future of bioinformatics research and sharing large genomic datasets as an extension of Garrett Hardin's 1968 publication, The Tragedy of the Commons. The Bionimbus PDC and the OSDC's Public Data Commons are excellent examples of Dr. Grossman and the OCC's efforts to provide shared, public resources in an open-source environment to the both the genomics community and researchers across all disciplines to facilitate discovery.
